Surprise ...





Imagine , two posts in a week ! I've been plagued by insomnia lately so I feel like the proverbial dogs dinner , but the resulting finished knitting makes me happy . This is the my version of the Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann . I'm not sure which of her books this was originally published in , but I'd ordered this leaflet from Schoolhouse Press sometime last year . Thank God for helpful hints from the Zimmermaniacs on Ravelry ,without them this might have been a UFO . I can't, for the life of me , get a decent picture to truly represent the gorgeousness of this yarn (Colinette Cadenza in the "Dusk " colourway ) . The colours are just so much deeper and richer than these photos show . I love it ! It will probably fit for all of two minutes because babies grow so fast .
Knitting baby socks is just like eating chips you can't just knit one pair , before you know it you've started another, and then another. I've finally found a way to knit up all my bits of sock yarn remnants . I keep petting them , they're so tiny and cute . Can't wait to put them on little baby feet !
Monkey socks , you're wondering - not done yet , somehow baby things keep jumping onto my needles . Well the playoffs start tonight so maybe soon .....

Your BSJ looks gorgeous! Isn't it sad, that they grow out of their cute baby things so fast? I like socks bettern than booties, can never have enough of those. Who needs monkeys, when a baby is on its way? :o)
